Lila Devi (lee-lah day-vee) is the founder of Spirit-in-Nature Essences, the oldest flower essence line within the U.S. and globally outside the U.K. since 1977. An engaging seminar leader with over 38 years’ experience, Lila lectures nationally and abroad. Through experiential wisdom, humor, and music, she brings an expansive view of people, plants, and animals to her programs, radio shows, and television appearances.

She has authored 4 books spanning 4 different genres: The Essential Flower Essence Handbook (considered a holistic classic, first published in 1996) and Flower Essences for Animals (a guide to helping our beloved pets know the highest quality of life through natural pet care)—both in several languages and the texts for the SiNE Home Study Courses; Bradley Banana and The Jolly Good Pirate, the first in a series of 20 children’s picture books, also in several languages, each personifying the uplifting quality of a flower essence as a little girl or boy who enjoys a cathartic adventure at a juncture of reality and fantasy; and her latest book, a spiritual memoir entitled From Bagels to Curry: A Jewish Yogi’s Journey Through the Passing of a Parent.
